Generational Imprint

Generation is defined as the average span of time between the birth of parents and that of their offspring. My grandmother, mother and I have lived together for most of my life. Certain events in my life have caused us to be drawn closer together revealing the good, bad, and interesting dynamics of our personalities.

Our single portraits show the characteristics of each of us as individuals, allowing only the general similarities to be seen, i.e. facial features. In the double exposing of our faces, I have displayed the intertwining of our relationships with each other on a one on one basis. These exposures show the imprint we have made on each other. Although each one is subtle, some are seen clearer than others, representing the merging of our similarities and the divide in our differences.
